candidate jon huntsman and senator joe manchin, and also we will talk to congressman elijah cummings, and marsha blackburn as well as jeff zeleny from "the new york times" and michael scherer from "the new york time times". >>> a month after the newtown mas ka ser, the president is expected to present an array of options. he has publicly mentioned universal background checks on gun buyers and bans on high capacity magazines. biden did not mention a controversial ban, because the panel focused on consensus proposals. you can consider the nhr -- nra out of those proposals. after the discussions, they said they were disappointed how little it had to keep the children safe and how much of an agenda tot ak the second amendment. joining me is the nra's president david keene, and thank you for coming. set the bottom line here. in that meeting, was anything said by the vice president that you could agree with in terms of a proposal and was anything said by you that he could agree with? >> well, he'd have to speak to that. we sent jim baker the former president of the institute for action to
that joe manchin has told a west virginia radio station that he is working with others, with democrats and republicans, on the universal background check. also on closing the gun show loophole. joe manchin, who, of course, campaigned for the office holding a rifle. this is a big change. >> well, for joe manchin, this is a critical time. he was just reelected to a full-term. he has a bit of breathing room, and this is an issue that he is willing to really try and find some ground. he will talk about his a-plus rating with the national rifle association, and a state like west virginia has a long history and kind of cultural tie to guns so, he understands it from that point of view. at the same time he is saying he wants to try to find a way to do more. now, today senator dianne feinstein introduced her assault weapons ban of 2013. she had been responsible for one back in the 1990s, and that is probably a step where joe manchin is not yet ready to go. is there a place where democrats can get together around something that relates to dealing with the gun violence issue, and also these othe
of joe manchin come forward and they didn't. >> we have joe manchin who had an a plus rating, i had an a plus rating over four terms, come out and say immediately, we have to sit and talk about this. then you have wayne lapierre to come out and talk and do what he did, offended middle america. you have extremists on talk radio talking about this as a war. extremist politicians talking about impeaching barack obama. you have guys that have worked for supreme court justices that say even talking about this is unconstitution unconstitutional. no, it's not. scalia said you have a right to protect your family and have a handgun in your house. the other things, that's subject to government regulation. they overreached. the mothre they overreached, i warned them, i have been a member all my life -- >> that's nice. >> i will do it again. >> willie, what's my biggest fault. >> you love a little too much. >> that is it. >> i love a little too much. i shared some of that love last week. anyw anyway, it is a still not too late. they can come to the table and be part of a comprehensive package.
murphy. then the dying art of bipartisanship with west virginia democratic senator joe manchin and former republican presidential candidate jon huntsman. plus, guns, spending and all the president's men and we do mean men, with republican congresswoman marcia blackburn, democratic congressman elijah cummings, "the new york times" jeff zeleny. and jeff scherer. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> a month after the massacre in newton, connecticut, the vice president is expected to present an array of gun control proposals this week. # he has publicly mentioned universal background checks on gun buyers and restrictions on high capacity magazines. the white house adds that president will also push congress for an assault weapons ban, a spokesman explained biden did not mention the controversial ban because the panel focused on consensus proposals. it appears you can count the national rifle association out of that conken sus. for starters, biden talked about his conclusions before he met with the nra and after the biden session the gun rights lobby said, quote, we were disapp
virginia's democratic senator joe manchin and loss an list mayoran -- los angeles marion antonio villaraigosa and amy walter and our own john dickerson. this is face the nation. captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and good morning even again and we're going to begin with the senior republican, senator john mccain. senator thanks for being with us this morning. well the president made it pretty clear on friday, we're leaving afghanistan and perhaps sooner than some expected, and every report you hear from behind the scenes is we're going to keep very very few people there. what do you make of this, what's your take on all this? >> it's a one of a series of decisions the president has made basically irrelevanting his military advisors so whether it be in iraq which is now unraveling very significantly or whether it be the decisions about a surge and how many and how soon they leave. there's a series of decisions all of which the president and the vice president have overruled on military leaders of their advi
: that includes strong pro-gun politicians likeke senator joe manchin of west virginia, who famously carried and shot a gun in an ad for his 2010 campaign. manchin has told the president that, after newtown, he's open to reasonable gun control. do you think senator manchin's willingness to discuss gun control now, is that significant? >> if joe manchin is doing that, then more moderate members, for sure, on this particular issue are really thinking it over.king >> reporter: what kinds of laws do you think possible to pass congress right now? >> i think the background check is possible. and i think magazine and assault weapon bans are possible. >> reporter: what about that argument, that the assaultul weapons ban didn't preventen something like columbine. it would not have prevented cho at virginia tech. >> the fact is no law is going to be perfect. >> reporter: the argument, ms. t brady, though, is that, don't pass them because they don't work. >> but they do help. if they save any lives, they're worth it. >> reporter: brady believes that gun control legislation will still be extremely diff
members i think are going to start to feel differently. when you get a joe manchin of west virginia coming out and saying "i hunt, i don't need more than three bullets in a magazine" and you get other long-standing strong proponents of the second amendment saying it's time for some changes, we're moving into a different world. >> brown: david kopel, do you think the politics have changed here or do you expect -- well, there certainly will be challenges legislatively. will there also be challenges legally? >> there will certainly be legal challenges because one important thing -- the way things have changechanged is we now have the supreme court having affirmed that the second amendment is an individual right and the core of that individual right is self-defense. so joe manchin is welcome to his opinion-- which he's stated to people from his own state just a few days ago-- that he thinks the only reason people should have guns is for sports. but that's not what the second amendment says. the second amendment says that self-defense is the core of the second amendment. so when you talk about
charles schumer and joe manchin are working together to do that. and yes, that's joe manchin, joe "'a'" rating from the nra, i'm so proud of the nra" manchin, now working on a proposal to extend background checks. we spoke with both senator kirk's office and senator manchin's office tonight about who else might be part. both offices independently stressed that this truly is a bipartisan effort, that is realistic. republicans are thinking they might want this too. is public pressure on this one issue, is public opinion on this one issue so lopsided that this finally is a no-brainer policy, no matter how cynical the beltway feels about it? join us now is senator richard blumenthal of connecticut, who has introduced the ammunition background check of 2013. senator blumenthal, it's really nice to have you here. thank you for being here. >> thank you, rachel. >> at today's hearing was there a moment when you felt like the politics were moving, that we're actually making progress on the issue? >> certainly gabby giffords' appearance was absolutely riveting, a high point, dramatic and powerf
joe manchin of west virginia. newark mayor cory booker and former white house adviser for health policy, dr. zeke emanuel. up next, mike allen with the top stories in the "politico playbook." but first, bill karins with a check on the forecast. bill? >> good morning to you, mika. kettle corn is what i prefer for movie night, by the way. if you want me to bring that, just let me know. >> it would be awkward. >> it wouldn't be awkward. it would be enjoyable. good morning. let's talk about this weekend. the fog was incredible in new england. it's been foggy for three straight days down to the mid-atlantic. airports were a mess over the weekend. as of now they're okay. once volume increases, the visibility still very poor around philly, new york, hartford. boston and d.c. are all right, but especially those big ar airports in the middle of i-95. through virginia and carolinas, have the umbrella with you today. it's another unusually very warm day, but that's coming to an end. look at the cold air by buffalo and pittsburgh. that's on the way for the east. in the middle of the nation,
like joe manchin come out and say, listen, this is a time we put everything on the table but even they have back pedaled to a certain degree so it is, i mean, that is very hard road that i think this president has. >> what would be their motivation then, for example, when the nra claims that they have seen an increase in their roles by thousands of people who are now joining the nra and inspired by what they see as this battle ahead? what would then motivate someone like a joe manchin who say everything's on the table but maybe not when it comes to specific guns? i believe that heitcamp said it's extreme ideas. >> that's the folks the president has to talk to. i had an idea to go to these people's districts, that is something that you have seen him do when he was trying to get money passed around the stimulus package and among -- about infrastructure. that's something i think he will have to do. take the fight to the folks who might be movable. this idea that we should continue, you know, to have a conversation with folks on the fringes, i don't think that's going to move the ball
. some of his biggest battles may be by democrats. >> this will be decided by swing votes. joe manchin in west virginia. right after newtown he suggested that he was going to flip on this. open to gun control, maybe supporting an assault weapons ban. this week joe manchin is pouring cold water on that and seems to be back pedaling. al franken is up for re-election. today he put out statement saying in principle he supports a ban on assault weapons but didn't say he supports legislation to do that. what the fear is i'm told by one top democratic senator an assault weapons ban suggests the president is taking weapons away that plays into republican arguments like marco rubio who said this today on fox. >> there is a second amendment. i didn't write the constitution. i believe in it. if you are going to do anything that impacts it. it better make some sense. here is the problem that i have by the president's own admission, the things that they're putting forward would have done nothing to prevent what happened, for example, in connecticut. >> and that's why top democratic senator is telli
schumer and joe manchin. senator coburn says he wants the bill to keep guns out of the hands of people that are a danger to themselves including criminals and the mentally ill. nra executive vice president wayne lapierre will testify before the senate today and has released his prepared remarks which, in part, read, quote, when it comes to the issue of background checks, let's be honest. background checks will never be "universal" because criminals will never submit to them. meanwhile, this morning, "the new york times" is reporting that despite chicago's strict gun laws, the city is still struggling to control its gun violence -- guns attributed to more than 500 homicides last year alone in the windy city with at least 40 killings already reported this year. we were talking about this earlier, joe. how do you think this is going to pan out as we look forward on guns? something that you're stepping into a bit yourself. >> well, i think it's great news that you have tom coburn, an oklahoma conservative, who's been a champion on a lot of conservative issues coming out and supporting univ
senator joe manchin is with us. former florida congressman connie mack joins me, and actor steven michael pozatta from "breaking bad." "starting point" comes to you live with special coverage from newtown, connecticut. we begin right now. ♪ >>> morning. welcome, everybody. we're coming to you live this morning, as i said, from newtown, connecticut. life in this small town changed forever a month ago today. today is the day of remembrance for those 20 children and six adults who were gunned down at sandy hook elementary school a month ago. today at 10:30 eastern time the stratford connecticut town council will vote on a proposal to name a new school after victoria soto, a teacher who was killed in that shooting. then at 11:00 a.m. eastern the group sandy hook promise unveils its plan to honor the victims. a national grassroots effort to address gun violence. they'll be joined by families of victims and survivors of other mass shootings. >>> last night at a public forum some 200 newtown residents debated the future of the sandy hook school building. some were calling for its demolition an
washington. joe manchin said, quote, i'm disappointed the president did not recommend the creation of a national commission on mass violence that i have proposed. a national commission can build the consensus we need for real action, backed not only by gun control advocates, mental health experts and entertainment industry executives but also by law-abiding gun owners. >>> the white house is worried that if this fight becomes too much about the assault weapons ban, and not enough about measures, which are more politically possible, they'll have a problem. they want to keep people focused on fights they can win. background checks, things like that. republicans have unsurprisingly responded negatively, including florida senator marco rubio. >> by the own admission of the white house, what they have proposed to do would do nothing to have prevented what happened in connecticut or colorado before that or any of these other places where this has occurred. i actually think the president and doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> the white house i
it will be hard but you see people like joe manchin willing to work on some things. he's a touchstone for a lot of democrats who look to people who are supporters of gun rights. i'm wontderring when you have the people who do push back on certain parts of it and that does include joe manchin and people like harry reid who basically has said he's not superulatively supportive of the president's plan. let's put it that way. i'm wondering, ryan is this because they live in those gun states, they fear the nra? tell us about the difficulties of getting some people like harry reid on board. >> right. it's because they understand the politics of guns. the problem for gun control advocates has never been broad popularity. a majority of people generally support gun control. they support an assault weapons ban. you showed those polls. there's broad support for these kinds of things. the problem isn't intensity. people who support an assault weapons ban don't -- in the past have not voted on their support of an assault weapons ban. you know, they would say that, yes, given the choice between having a ban
.m., this week to go with jack reed of rhode island and bob corker of tennessee. also, joe manchin. at 2:00 p.m., fox's sunday, chris wallace with richard blumenthal, the connecticut democrat, and kelly ayotte, a new hampshire republican. cnn kos "state of the union" follows at 3:00 p.m.. david keene, president of the nra, and chris murphy of connecticut, and joe manchin of west virginia. at four o'clock, "face the nation" will bring john mccain and john manchin of west -- west virginia. also, stanley, crystal. -- retired general stanley crystal. finally at 4:00 eastern, "face the nation" from cbs. you can listen to the mall and c-span rio, on a 90.1 fm in the washington, d.c. rate -- washington, d.c. area. you can also listen on your smartphone or go online to c- span.org teo .org -- cspanradio.org. >> hopkins could read the president's new unlike anybody else. he came as close as anyone to be in evidence in to what robert sherwood would call roosevelts heavily forested interior. heavily forested interior. he went to be still in the presence of the president. went to press him. when to back
. >> if you're a senator from joe manchin from west virginia really hurt the democratic party several elections going back to al gore, if you're bobby casey in pennsylvania and quietly talking to harry reid, do you want him to bring this up or would you rather he didn't bring it up until the house passes it. if the house doesn't pass it, wait until they bring it up in the senate. aren't you better off as democratic senator or mod ra rat, if there's one out there, wouldn't you rather not have to vote on this? >> joe manchin is actually going to be bringing up a bill that is going to require universal registration. it's an 85% deal. i think a guy like joe manchin can win the day in west virginia. i think these high capacity magazines, as joe and i have talked an awful lot since newtown. as joe said, i've been hunting my entire life in west virginia, all my buddies i grew up with have been hunting in virginia my entire life. we have never gone "into the woods" with more than five or six bullets. you don't need them. >> let me give you a snapshot, i'm standing in the stands interviewing t
with the president's plan right now? >> harry reid, joe manchin from west virginia, bob casey from pennsylvania. the aim for the president now is to find these n.r.a.-backed democrats and squeeze them and put the pressure on and say, are you uncomfortable when i bring little children up here to talk about schoolplace shootings? i can do it in your state or where you live and i can come and keep the pressure on you, until you agree to do some kind of a gun ban and get on board. remember this, megyn, you hit it right on the head, if the president can't get legislation out of the senate, he can't begin to apply pressure on the house. he can talk about it, but until the senate can actually move legislation, it's not going to work, so somebody like joe manchin who we first met on the national scene shooting with a deer rifle, the president's cap and trade bill back in 2010, if he can't get guys like that to sign up and get on board, nothing will happen. i bet he'll come with a pretty heavy hand. >> megyn: he's a west virginia guy, joe manchin and you're a west virginia guy. west virginia is not goin
moment of bipartisanship as lawmakers lined up to see him climb those stairs. joe manchin there of course, a senator as well, who has visited senator kirk many times in illinois. joining us dr. marc siegel, associate professor, nyu langone medical center. as we witness this event, dr. siegel, cab you tell us what that journthink would be like suffering a terrible stroke some didn't even, there was question about whether or not he would survive to this moment being able to walk up the senate stairs, what is that journey like? >> jenna, he is only 53 years old. 2/3 of strokes occur with people more of 65. this is the right side of the brain, so the wiring goes across and it affects the left side of the body. you believe 70% of the people never return to their jobs after having a stroke. what an inspiration to see him go back to work, go back to the senate, for people all over the country who have had a stroke. it is number one cause of disability in the united states. to see him return to work is really, really inspiring to stroke patients everywhere. jenna: in his journey he had three brai
new york times" today, democrat joe manchin of west virginia has faced doubts within his constituency who feel the second amendment is in jeopardy. "the times" describes the senator's attempts to reassure his constituents about the political climate in washington. he said i see no movement, no talk, no bills, no nothing. they remained skeptical. we give up our rights one piece at a time. a banker named charlie houck. he actually had a meeting and said how many of you are concerned you're going to lose your second amendment rights? all the hands went up. that shows how difficult it's going to be, even at this table, it seems to clear what needs to be done. that's not the way everybody feels. >> i'm disappointed mr. scarborough is not at this table because we had a heated one-on-one about first and second amendment about video games, comparing it to slippery slope on the second amendment. i've done a lot of research since then. i want to go back at him on that. this is a black-and-white issue again. to draw the line and say that in some way, shape or form we are going back to the founde
territory if they can thread the needle for people like joe manchin. >> the numbers are overwhelming. you have joe manchin who's now coming together, has a bipartisan bill out we'll be talking about. he's together with senator kirk out of illinois, a republican, talking about universal background checks. again, this is something that stands anywhere from 85% to 92% approval rating. the nra is still against it. we'll see if any republicans are still against it, too. steve, i'm going to -- since mika's not here -- >> oh, god. >> my breakfast has just arrived. and i'm going to prepare, and i'm going to make it even harder for a woman to carry me from combat. and we'll be right back. when we come back, we're going to be talking to mary matalin. i'm very excited about that. she likes munchkins as well. "fortune's" leigh gallagher, "the washington post's" eugene robinson and actor victor garber. up next, mike allen with the top stories in the "politico playbook." first here's bill karins with a check on the weekend forecast. bill, i hope the forecast is as sweet as this munchkin going down. >>
recommendation to president obama later this week. former secretary of state colin powell and senator joe manchin both weighing in today. >> i'm a gun owner. i'm a believer in the second amendment. i know the amendment rather thoroughly. i know the issue of the well-regulated militia. but at the same timeresponsibil constitution and bill of rights to protect our people and with respect to assault rifles i see no need for bush mav in the hands of an individual person who might be deranged. go out toy range and fire a bushmaster. >> you can't push law abiding gun owners away. they have to be at the table. and you need to find out what their preference of protecting that. and what i would say to all of my friends that are nra and gun owners, that there's no way that they're going to take your second amendment rights away. that won't happen. >> let's get right to nbc news white house correspondent peter alexander. with another good day to you, peter. the vice president's going to be reporting his findings to the president tuesday. do we have an idea what he might be recommending? >> well, he sort of
is facing resistance from fellow democrats as well. look at joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, after the tragedy in newtown, he suggested even though he's a more conservative democrat from west virginia he might be supportive of an assault -- a ban on assault weapons and he's now walking that back a bit. senator al franken from minnesota, up for reelection in 2014, a liberal democrat, not conservative democrat. suggested yesterday he wasn't sure about a ban on assault weapons and today he's clarifying in fact he supports what he says is the principle of banning assault weapons, but didn't specifically say he supports legislation to ban those assault weapons. and so, it's interesting, because jay carney at the daily briefing today got a lot of questions of bringing democrats along, he says the president is confident after lobbying, and going out on the road eventually that some of these lawmakers will come along, take a listen. >> he firmly believes they are and he'll be having that covering with republicans and democrats and with americans more broadly. again, i think you've s
against joe manchin. -- for jule stein for president and against joe manchin. you have to go to joe biden to tell the democrats what is in the bill? and things being done at 2:00 a.m. and midnight. when they say this is corporate us, n, it will night -- when they say this is going to hurt us hurtno. hos-- no. guest: they have a big energy plans and tax plans. they really go nowhere. if you are freshman member, after gains in order. if you have to get at least a subcommittee chairmanship. so they have big plans a campaign on. when they get to congress it really does not matter. in the senate is a little different because you have a lot more power. within the house, if you walk into the leadership office and use say to john boehner i would like you to move my tax plan, you get some raised eyebrows. host: yesterday we had a freshman from south carolina, mick mulvaney, he said i ended up doing things i said i would never do when i ran for this seat and one of them is raising the debt ceiling. guest: that's right. a lot of republicans who came in to change the world, and they realized, some of
and finding common ground to solve the nation's problems. democratic senator joe manchin and former republican presidential candidate jon huntsman called their partnership no labels. governor huntsman and senator manchin join me now. what's with the yellow ties, did you send out a memo today? >> we're working together across party lines. >> it's an auspicious color and today's an auspicious day, joe, that's what it's all about. >> all right. so governor, or i should say senator manchin, you're also a former governor of west virginia, the president came out swinging today against republicans in his news conference. let's listen. >> and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. >> he's talking about bipartisan, but you would agree that he's also playing politics here or no? >> i'm not going to second-gue
joe manchin come on. a very proud member of the nra. with an "a" rating, said it's time for us and the nra to look at ourselves and make shchanome changes. a lot of people thought that might open up a larger discussion. that hasn't necessarily happened. we haven't seen a lot of people line up behind joe manchin to look at the nra and say hey, we need to moderate ourselves or we need to be at least open to some change. so do you think at this moment that this time is different, or has the moment passed in some ways? >> you know, i think we are living in a time when there is slightly a culture of instant amnesia where -- and maybe it's to do with the amount of media we have access to. it's like we gorge ourselves on a story, and then after a few days, it's gone. and that happens, unfortunately, at a policy level but also from a viewer level. and so the urgency seems so intense at the time. and it certainly did -- i was up in newtown for four days at the time, and it seemed like the whole country was focused on this. you had not just manchin, you had senator warner come out and sp
